My Life Is Good When Compared To Many Others - Poem by Francis Duggan

My life is good when compared to many others so many poor souls in the big World out there
And many poor people live in wealthy Countries poor people as we know do live everywhere
Those arrogant people who talk of life's choices are people who do tend to generalize
That people are born to poor and disadvantaged parents are things they do not seem for to realize
The gap between the haves and the have nots keep widening the rich getting richer does seem to be true
To be born in a poor suburb to very poor parents to any child hardly does seem a fair due
In the refugee camps of the World millions of the Homeless and Stateless poor people without any place for to go
To as any Government does not seem to want them the numbers of the poor and the dispossessed seem to grow
In a World of many billions of people where the majority are poor or in dire poverty
I'm not one who should need cause for complaining as one of life's luckier people is me
I could have been born to pauperised parents I could have been born as a refugee
Those born into poverty do not have life choices though the arrogant with that would not agree
They themselves were born into opportunity a point that they do seem to miss
But despite a good education to life's facts they are ignorant and ignorance it can be bliss.
